Update 03/24/2010: HLJ just announced that their PG Raiser was on sale for 30% Off. Add that with the Cheap FedEx rates and 20% discounted EMS shipping till June 30 and you could come out with a bargain here.
Update 02/09/2010: 3rd Party sellers selling it at Amazon for $280.11 … gaaahhh.
Update 12/05/2009: After the color guide, I started translating slowly the PG 00 Raiser’s Japanese Construction Manual into English.
Update 11/28/2009: With HWJapan’s Gundam Sale ongoing, their price for the PG 00 Raiser is at 17500 yen or 30% off. The bad news is that due to size shipment limitations, they cannot ship to the following countries: (EMS) Spain, Philippines, Argentine, and others. (SAL) U.S.A., Argentine, Australia, Brazil, Mexico Russia and others. I wonder if its the same for other online shops? I guess what they mean here is that for the US, they can’t ship via SAL, only EMS? I hope that is what they mean by that. Best to shoot them an email before ordering from HWJapan.
Update 11/11/2009: Amiami is selling this for only 18,280, they just recently started shipping overseas.
Update 10/22/2009: Amazon Japan is selling it for ￥16533 yen, don’t think they ship overseas though.
Update: According to this official post from the developers of the PG 00 Raiser, the kit has a total of 1031 piece parts.
Whoa, just saw this at the Bandai Site. A Perfect Grade rendition of the 00 Raiser (”Double O” Raiser) in 1/60 th scale. Be sure to check out the PDF file at the link above for more details and shots of the kit.
In the “Gundam”-verse, a GN-0000 00 Gundam will combine with a GNR-010 0 Raiser to produce this marvelous mecha of mayhem and destruction known as the 00 Raiser.
Also included in the kit are: GN Sword II, GN Sword III, GN Beam Sabre, GN Shield, GN Missile A/S, and a Hand Missile Unit
More shots of the kit with the 0 Raiser already attached to the Gundam 00.
Here’s the 3D drawing of the 0 Raiser.
